The Pieces Left (self-released)
Francesca Lee is a talented lady. In addition to her lovely vocals, she plays piano, acoustic guitar, synths, and Wurlitzer on The Pieces Left. This is a very personal album, with lyrics that ring true to life. The music is light, airy pop with a melancholy tone, delicate and cleverly arranged. Thoroughly lovely stuff.
At Hotel Utah (500 4th St., San Francisco) on January 23. 9 p.m., $10.
